The Lusaka Sanitation Program (LSP) is part of the National Water Supply and Sanitation Program (NUWSSP), which GRZ is implementing, with the aim of providing adequate sanitation facilities to all urban citizens of Lusaka Province. The program interventions aim to address a crisis in sanitation that is costing Zambia 1.3% of GDP per year. Lusaka is worst affected by poor sanitation with annual outbreaks of cholera, typhoid and dysentery. The program will implement investments consistent with the Lusaka Sanitation Master Plan (2011-2030) and develop LWSC’s capacity to manage all aspects of sanitation from conventional sewerage, on-site systems and FSM. The LSP will be implemented in two parts, with each part being prepared and implemented concurrently. Part I will focus on the rehabilitation of Manchinchi and Chunga Wastewater Treatment Plants, plus their associated main collectors, pumping stations and sludge treatment and Part II will develop a comprehensive approach to sanitation in Lusaka, including on-site and off-site sanitation, health, hygiene and sanitation promotion and technical assistance. The program cost is estimated at US$ 127.83 (equivalent UA 90.83 million). It is expected to start in 2015 with a duration of five years.
The program aims to increase access to sustainable sanitation services to Lusaka’s residents especially the urban poor and strengthen Lusaka Water and Sewerage Company’s (LWSC) capacity to manage sanitation services. It aims to address one of Zambia’s most binding constraints to economic growth through infrastructure investment in Lusaka, the rapidly urbanizing capital. The objectives are to increase access to sustainable sanitation services to Lusaka’s residents especially the urban poor and strengthen LWSC’s capacity to manage sanitation services.
The intervention will have direct and indirect benefits to Lusaka City’s population with improved sanitation to about 600,000 indirect beneficiaries and 473, 000 direct beneficiaries (52% women). Urban residents in the whole of Lusaka city will benefit from improved performance of Lusaka Water and Sewerage Company in delivering water and sanitation services.
